This blog focuses on evolutionary, biocultural, and ecological perspectives on media, and the role of media in public appreciation of evolution. It's a small niche, but it's mine!

I'm William Evans, a Professor in the Department of Telcommunication and Film at the University of Alabama, where I teach courses in media content and effects. I also participate in the university's Evolution Working Group and sometimes pitch in with our Evolutionary Studies program.

My research focuses on science communication. I currently serve on the Editorial Board of the journal Science Communication.
